TEAMS Program

The Integrated Teaching and Learning Program's TEAMS initiative (Tomorrow's Engineers... creAte. iMagine. Succeed.) offers academic year (in-class and afterschool) and summer engineering instruction to elementary, middle and high schools in Longmont, Lafayette and Denver that serve diverse populations. Their goal: to improve science and math literacy, and increase the number of high school students prepared to choose an engineering and/or technology college path.

Funded in part through the National Science Foundation's Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education Program, the TEAMS approach is to make engineering exploration part of every child's educational experience through in-class, hands-on, inquiry-based engineering instruction, augmented with afterschool and summer programming.

This is a private program by request only, or for a specific audience or group. For more information, please visit the program website.
